Yeah, I liked the epsiode and I am certainly liking the Earl and Yaoman pairing. One thing that confuses me is that Yao seems to think that the Idol belongs to him and that Earl has only a tangental claim to it. Dude, that idol is as much his as it is yours in my mind.
I agree that they will go far. I also think that we will see the idols get played this year because of the new rule about playing it before you collect votes. I am not sure I like that rule and I think it needs some tweaking, but it at least makes it so the idols are almost certain to get played.
If someone digs up the fake coconut idol and thinks it is real, that would be a true all-time Survivor moment-- up there with Michael Skupin killing the boar and HeiDDi and Jenna stripping for peanut butter and a couple other truly memorable Survivor events. I really want to see Probst reaction to someone playing the wrong immunity idol.
I agree that Dreamz is primed to defect to Earl and Yaoman's group. I have a hard time seeing those guys not going a long way with the idol.
Oh, one last thing-- after reading the clues Lisi seemed unsure about where the idol was burried. She had an idea, but was not certain. WOW IS SHE DUMB OR WHAT?!?!!
